Li Mingyang was born in a time of war. He had poor living conditions since childhood, but he had a strong learning ability. After receiving the relief food distributed by the church a few times, he could communicate with foreigners in the church in English, so he was sent to the church school. By the time he graduated from missionary school, Li Mingyang was able to communicate with anyone in English.
Having received a western education since childhood and being able to speak fluent English, Li Mingyang successfully entered St. John's University, a famous noble University, and then stayed in the University. When Li Mingyang was studying at St. John's University, famous scholar Lin Yutang and architect I.M. Pei were his alumni. Since then, Li Mingyang, a young man, began to roam alone on the beach of Shanghai in the 1930s and 1940s.
Li Mingyang has been the director of the Department of physical education at St. John's University for more than ten years. Among the students he has taught, there are many great figures like Rong Yiren and Lu Ping.
In 1949, Li Mingyang took the last steamer from Shanghai to Hong Kong, and then settled in Hong Kong. The last tenant of Li Mingyang's first house in Hong Kong was the famous Mr. Liu Yazi. Under the circumstances of the great era, Li Mingyang had countless connections with many big figures.
After he came to Hong Kong, Li Mingyang used his savings in Shanghai to set up the "Li's Doll" brand. The dolls with Chinese elements he produced soon became the most popular products. When Li Jiacheng just started his business, Li Mingyang already had tens of thousands of assets and was a real big businessman at that time.
In his later years, because of the impact of foreign toys, Li Mingyang's company began to decline.
However, at this time, Li Mingyang had a different brilliance. He began to appear frequently in some film and television works, and thus became one of the iconic figures in the Hong Kong performing arts circle. 、、
In 1994, directed by Zhu Yanping and starred by Lin Zhiying, Shi Xiaolong, Hao Shaowen and Xu ruozhen, he played the abbot in the comedy Xiaolin boy. In the same year, directed by Zhu Yanping and starred by Lin Zhiying, Shi Xiaolong, Hao Shaowen and Xu ruozhen, he played master Changmei in the comedy Xiaolin boy II: new Oolong courtyard.
As the saying goes, "you are not as good as ten miles of spring breeze". You are successful in your career and proud in your life. Coincidentally, a slightly upturned smile was accidentally captured by a photographer and published in a postcard with the title "smile of Hong Kong". It is this star film that gives his life a strong sense of legend. I don't know if anyone still remembers Xiao Fangfang. After seeing this picture, she called on Li Mingyang to play in her own film. Later, he starred in the movie cage people, which was released in 1992. It describes the pitiful and pathetic parts of the lowest class people to the marrow. Although the story is general, the theme is novel and highly praised by the audience. An ancient costume love movie "decoy monk", which was released in 1993, plays the role of Tongda abbot. Although it is still a small role, there is an impressive scene, which gives Chen Chong a loud slap in the face. Li Mingyang, 80 years old, won the best supporting actor award in Taiwan's Golden Horse twice for his wonderful performance in "seducing the monk" and "cage people". However, he never received the award because he did not pursue making movies, but only because of his inner love.
In 1994, Li Mingyang played the master of father and son in the comedy "little Feixia". On July 20, 1995, in Hong Kong, Zhu Yanping's "invincible anti duel star" was shown, in which he played master Changmei.

Mr. Li Mingyang has been involved in many movies in his life. Although he is a supporting actor, he still creates vivid characters for us with his distinctive and unique characteristics, which makes us remember him involuntarily. (China online review)
At the age of 80, he won the best supporting actor award in Taiwan's Golden Horse twice, but he didn't pursue making movies and didn't accept the award. A cute monk who doesn't pursue fame and wealth is really admirable. He is kind and simple in his life. He has experienced both hard and good days. All the money he has saved is given to the people in the Vietnamese refugee camp and dedicated his love to the world. (China Youth Online Review)
